Product description

Review

I love all of Nancy Singleton Hachisu's books, but this is the one I'll use most. The recipes are (as always) clear and each one that I've made has come out as described...I especially appreciate that Nancy is so in tune with the quality of her ingredients and takes pains to describe them accurately. This alone makes me trust the recipes and Nancy's broad knowledge of Japanese food. Japan: The Cookbook is a wonderful book to cook from, look through, and live with.--Deborah Madison

[A] new window into Japanese cuisine. Familiar cooking techniques are applied in ways I've never seen... What animates the book isn't just Nancy Singleton Hachisu's research but her lived experience of community and tradition. So many seasonal vegetables star in her recipes that I've already found myself consulting the book after visiting the farmers' market.--Jonathan Kauffman, author, Hippie Food: How Back-to-the-Landers, Longhairs and Revolutionaries Changed the Way We Eat

Of all the cuisines we hope to get to grips with, Japan's is the trickiest so we can't wait to tuck into Phaidon's bamboo-effect tome... Nancy Singleton Hachisu [...] demystifies tempura, teppanyaki and ramen, while arty photos display the dishes.--Sunday Times Travel Magazine

Th[is] recipe from [a] notable new cookbook offer[s] striking updates on the summertime standby.--Wall Street Journal Online

Ramen, sushi, stir fries... Japan's signature dishes are loved around the world, but they can be tricky to reproduce at home. Nancy Singleton Hachisu's Japan: The Cookbook aims to demystify those classics and more. Divided into 15 chapters by course, the book brings together 400 recipes that explore every part of Japan through soups, noodles, pickles, one pots, sweets and, of course, lots of vegetables, in one delicious package.--Christie's International Real Estate

Hachisu has long been a reliable source on all things Japanese cuisine, and her latest cookbook is by far her most show stopping... Highly comprehensive.--Tasting Table

An essential, authoritative, and approachable guide. --Bon Appétit

Nancy Singleton Hachisu, who was born in California but has made her home for the last 30 years on an organic farm in Japan, is a veteran of English-language books about Japanese cooking... Those looking to start exploring the breadth of Japan's cooking will find much to dive into.--Food & Wine Online

Interest in cooking Japanese food is growing hugely, so this informed, calm book is very timely. Hachisu is well-known as a food writer and for this sumptuous title she has compiled 400 recipes - from the most famous regional dishes to simple home-style cooking.--CODE Quarterly

[T]he defining characteristic of all Japanese food is the care and attention that goes into preparing it. If you're going to try your hand at any of it at home, it's best to have a guide - and there isn't a better one than Japan: The Cookbook. Complete with over 400 recipes by food writer Nancy Singleton Hachisu, the book makes Japanese cooking accessible, with clear instructions and helpful notes alongside many of the recipes... Elevate your home cooking to a new level.--Cool Material

Aficionados of Japanese food and enthusiastic amateurs alike will love this elegant new cookbook... Each chapter offers fascinating insights into a different aspect of Japanese cooking, and there's a useful glossary at the back. The photography and design are simple but sublime, just like the cuisine itself. --Wallpaper*

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful variety of recipes.
By DrDoolittle on 6 February 2021
I wanted to try a range of recipes and this book offered a variety.
I have been using it for meals for the past 2 weeks and have found all recipes very tasty.
Some have exceeded my taste buds expectations😊
There is a need for a number of Japanese ingredients. I was able to purchase some at an Asian grocer but the Japanese vegetables are not available where I live so I have adapted the vegetables to be similar to the recipes with very tasty outcomes.
I like the range of recipes and am so glad I bought this book.
When we are using the internet for recipes, you may wonder if it is worth having another cook book.
Yes!! The recipes are well laid out to read.
There are 2 recipes on the left with a photo of one on the right.
It is simple and beautiful to follow and use.
I am So glad I bought this book.
